Opinions on Pentax XCF Binoculars

Hello fellow birders,

I was looking to buy a pair of the 8X40 version of these. They look pretty nice and are priced right at about $99. I was wondering if anyone has a piar of these or might have used a pair and could comment on them. I'm fairly new to this and will be mostly using them for backyards and local parks. I'm alos not looking to go too expensive because I'd likely carry them around a lot and would have to be too worried about damaging them or them getting stolen,

Thanks and take care,

Jim

Jim,
I have no experience with that bin, but Pentax is usually pretty good, you cannot go too far wrong with that price. Here is a link of what may be a better price, if you are interested:
